Evonik Industries, one of the world’s leading suppliers of methacrylate chemistry, is expanding the production capacity of methacrylate specialty esters in the USA and Germany, to meet the increasing demand of the market. At the production site in Mobile, Alabama, the capacity of methacrylate specialty esters will effectively be doubled. For the location in Worms, Germany, the expansions are planned during this calendar year.
Specialty esters based on methacrylic chemistry are an important building block for many modern polymer formulations. They impart beneficial properties not only in coatings formulations but in adhesives and other unique applications as well.
Evonik Industries produces and markets special methacrylic monomers, MMA, GMAA, n- and i-BMA and hydroxy methacrylates under the trademark VISIOMER®.
